* ''Series/{{House}}''
** In one episode, House needs the medical history of a patient who'd been living at a convent and asks the nun running the place for her history.\\
'''You'd expect''': Said nun to simply give him the patient's history, telling him that the woman joined their convent when she was fifteen.\\
'''Instead''': She tells House that said woman was born in the convent because her religion believes anyone who finds religion is reborn, completely ignoring that a doctor needs actual physical history, not her religious beliefs.\\
'''The Result''': House's patient nearly dies before he discovers the problem is a screw in one of her bones because he didn't have an accurate medical history.

'''You'd Expect:''' Carly to give Shebly a heads up about this ''before'' the conference so that she does not take it the wrong way in case she does not realize their intent.\\
'''Instead:''' She never does, and Shelby quickly gets offended by Carly's remarks. And then when ''Sam'' gets involved, Shelby snaps and starts a big ruckus resulting in Carly being pushed into Shelby's sickly grandmother who is attending in way that looks very much like she is ''tacking'' her, resulting Shelby vowing not to hold back on Carly at the conference.\\

Simon's friend Travis is in and hears the call.\\
'''You'd expect''': Travis to immediately take the tape out of the recorder and deliver it to the police.\\
'''Or at least''': That he would switch off the recorder/unplug the phone if he wasn't sure how to get the tape out without damaging it.\\
'''Instead''': Travis runs off to find Simon and the local policeman, leaving the tape in the fully-functional recorder. By the time they all get back, another call is being recorded over the top of Dodge's message.
